List of Best Government Schools in Kolkata 2023
Government schools are affordable and they provide the minimum required infrastructure to meet the basic needs. Government schools provide education to all the children without any partiality. government schools are administered and funded by the local, state or national government. Parents always try their best to provide the best education to their kids but sometimes private schools are not affordable. So they try to find out the better govt. schools. Most of the govt schools are taught in regional language but there are few good schools, have started to teach in english language too.
